A fabric-painted baby blanket

Summer is here and with it, lots of activities with Puttachi. 

I draw a lot of inspiration and ideas from the internet, and we've made lots of things together.  So I thought I would start putting up pictures of things I've made, alone or with Puttachi - so that you can get some ideas, maybe....

I made this baby blanket when I was expecting Puttachi.  The simplest kind, really.  Drew simple pictures, and used fabric paint to colour them.   This could have very well been an applique blanket. 
After I finished painting, my mother attached soft flannel cloth underneath it, and sewed it all up with a red-and-white checked border. 

And yes, that is Puttachi's 2-week-old head.

Oh wow! I never cease to be amazed at people like you who turn out art&craft products like magic. I'm SO bad at it! This is beautiful!!

Oooooh I magnified and saw the pic - it's really beautiful! I probably never actually saw it since I wasn't around when Puttachi was born :-\

RajK, I thought I was bad too! I've realized that if you try, you'll find that you're much better than you thought in most things! :)

Peevee, I can't believe I haven't shown this to you!

This is such a good idea. Can you post pictures of the other arts and crafts that you do at home, either by yourself or with Puttachi.
